Now fellow family members have to decide which shows to delete when they receive the DVR Storage message. At least with DVR technology, a Wedding Video isn’t getting erased.

Even though Hard Drives in DVR Boxes have gotten larger, Cable and Satellite providers have been feeding on consumers desire to record a multitude of channels and in HD which can rack up some serious storage. The battles will rage on as more is done to increase storage and delivery methods. Check out this very interesting article on the Verizon Website
